Macon's Jeffersonville Rd. project to break ground soon
MACON, Ga. -- There is movement on a Macon road project more than 20 years in the making.
Currently, Jeffersonville Road is undergoing plenty of work -- from tree removal to road marking. Commissioner Elaine Lucas says there will be a groundbreaking ceremony on Oct. 5 at 10:30 a.m.
Recently, the county commission approved additional funds for the Jeffersonville Road project -- which was approved back in 1994. It was part of a larger road improvement project that mayor Robert Reichert says was pushed back due to environmental concerns.
Commissioner Lucas, who has pushed for this project, says it's about time.
"It's frustrating to think you have a solution -- have a plan to work it out -- and then it falls apart," she said. "But this time it won't fall apart. Everything is in place -- funding, the plans, the contractor. Everything is in place, so we are ready to move on Jeffersonville Road."
The project is aimed to make Jeffersonville a safer road for travelers.
